Artist Spotlight: Fee Greening

My latest art world obsession? The brilliant work of English illustrator Fee Greening. I had the pleasure of visiting Fee’s studio while in London earlier this month and on top of being a serious talent, the girl is also an absolute doll (she sported a striped shirt and the most fab white overalls…). A graduate of Central St. Martins (where she met her studio-mate Luke Edward Hall), much of Fee’s work is inspired by cultural icons beloved by the design world (Marchesa Casati, Virginia Woolf, Peggy Guggenheim in “bellini pink”!). Needless to say, I came home with multiple prints to frame. I’m not the only one buzzing about Fee, she’s also recently been featured by House & Garden and collaborated with London curator, Alex Eagle. Below, explore more of Fee’s fantastic work and read some fun interview questions she kindly answered for us. Adore her work as much as I do…? Follow Fee on instagram here and shop her amazing prints here. READ POST

Best of Etsy: Jenny Rijke Ceramics

If you love marbled pieces like me, you’ll appreciate these stunning ceramics by Jenny Rijke. Made in rural Eastern Ontario, each piece is crafted by hand. The blue and white palette is timeless and each piece is truly one of a kind. I’m thinking of investing in a set of mugs for cozy Danish evenings. Explore more of Jenny’s creations below and shop her work here. READ POST

Best of Etsy: Brass Mobiles by Lappalainen

I’ve been coveting a beautiful mobile for some time now (remember these beauties?) and the striking creations by Lappalainen may have convinced me to pull the trigger. Made of brass, iron, and copper, each of their stunning, handcrafted designs are truly works of art. While I love the modern look of one hanging above a crib in a nursery, in our home, I think I’d hang it in a corner of the living room, bouncing around the sunlight. Shop their full collection here.

Artist Spotlight: Linocut Prints by The Inkery

Simon and I don’t always agree on art, but one medium we both love is the linocut print. These cool creations by The Inkery in Edinburgh, Scotland are both husband and wife approved. Each piece is printed by hand using vegetable oil based ink on acid free paper. I’m coveting the butterfly, thistle, and giraffe (and the dinosaur for a nursery!). They also make great gifts—I think my big brother needs the Boston Terrier (he has an adorable one named Hooper). Below, find some of my favorite linocut prints by The Inkery and shop their entire collection here. READ POST

Artist Spotlight: Woodblock Prints by Matt Underwood

Looking to spruce up your walls for spring? I recently came across the work of English artist Matt Underwood and was immediately taken with his colorful creations. Each original hand pulled wood block print is available as a limited edition. Some contain as many as 12 colors! I love how vibrant and playful, yet classically English they are. Explore all of Matt Underwood’s artwork here. READ POST

Best of Etsy: Ornament Letterpress

Looking to expand your stationery collection…? Lately, I’ve been admiring the designs of Ornament Letterpress. From chic coral branch gift wrap to preppy hydrangea notecards, this Ohio-based press, owned by Miranda Hunt Borden, does it all. The cards are printed on a vintage Vandercook Proof press circa 1941 (amazing!) and they paper is 100% recycled cotton. The decorative-obsessed will appreciate that many of the card designs are inspired by textiles—these Turkish flower cards are at the top of my wish list! Explore all of Ornament Letterpress’ lovely creations here. READ POST
